U.S. Special Operations Command Reinstates Diversity Inclusion Adviser Who Compared Trump to Hitler
[Breitbart] The United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) confirmed it has reinstated its chief of diversity and inclusion professional racist, Richard Torres-Estrada, following an investigation into politically charged social media posts he made, including one that compared former President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.

SOCOM said in an email statement to Breitbart News on Friday:

Mr. Torres-Estrada has resumed the duties of the Chief of Diversity & Inclusion for United States Special Operations Command after a USSOCOM commander-directed investigation into the circumstances surrounding his hiring concluded and found no violations of law or DoD regulation.

SOCOM reassigned Torres-Estrada in late March after some of his social media posts drew attention for their anti-Trump and anti-Republican leanings. For example, on June 2, 2020, he tweeted a meme that criticized Trump by comparing a photo of him to a doctored photo of Hitler.

  • McDonough said that the new policy was 'the right thing to do'

Don Lemon: 'I Don't Know If America Sees Black People ... as Fully Human'
[NEWSBUSTERS.ORG] Maybe it's just you, Don.
Posted by: Fred || 06/22/2021 00:00 || Comments || Link || E-Mail|| [243 views] Top|| File under:

Most people treat other people with respect and tolerance in a civilized society, if and until the interactions turn negative, untenable or uncivilized.

Possibly Mr. Lemon, has come across an article on the internet blog, NationalVangard.org which may have raised this question in his mind.
The article is Blacks Aren’t Human with the byline ROSEMARY W. PENNINGTON (EDITOR) · 14 MARCH, 2015. Written with a global sociological view.

I'll provide you some aid Mr. Lemon, this was an opinion piece, and the internet is full of opinions, some reasonable, some not.

You are young Mr. Lemon, a Millennial, you need to pace yourself, lest your world suddenly deteriorates because of prejudicial thinking...

#3  /\ You are young Mr. Lemon, a Millennial, you need to pace yourself, lest your world suddenly deteriorates because of prejudicial thinking...

Age is certainly not a guarantor of knowledge but it usually does contain a measure of life experiences and observations. These experiences and observations guide our opinions, thinking and intentions. I believe an applicable term or reference might simply be our desire or intention for 'survival.'

Some form of organized 'civilization' containing positive behaviors and outcomes appears to be a key to survival. While they cannot yet communicate with us, I suspect the animal kingdom might agree.

'Fully human' is certainly not the question. 'Fully civilized' is likely the correct term.

#14  Mr. Lemon, video clips like these about the mob twerking on an ambulance (thanks, Skid) also make it difficult for me. I don't want to be a racist but clearly something has gone wrong somewhere.

Government Corruption
A Canticle For Fauci
[THEAMERICANCONSERVATIVE] A friend noted last year that he’s come to pity virtually everyone he sees on television. Who is more pitiable than Anthony Fauci
...American epidemiologist with rotating opinions, warnings about the unlikely, and reassurances that if you wear a mask you won't get COVID, as long as you're wearing multiple masks, assuming wearing a mask is necessary in the first place...
of recent days? He was a paragon of self-mastery, the indispensable virtue in an age when one must be an actor to be an effective bureaucrat, and a bureaucrat to be a scientist—"the princes and the servants of the princes and...the magi." Last year, one saw signs that read, "In Fauci we trust." Now, amid heightened scrutiny, Fauci rebukes those who question him with the pronouncement that he is science incarnate: "Attacks against me are attacks against science." Et Scientia caro factum est et habitavit in nobis. In the end, Fauci has no mastery over science nor public policy nor even himself. The only real power was exercised over his fellow citizens, which arose from their fear and was maintained through lies and half-truths he termed science.

Fauci’s fellow elites don’t need him anymore. Trump is gone, and trillions of dollars have been printed for Wall Street, the blob, and corporations, especially those whose interests are interwoven with the state, whose own power is substantially expanded. In the wealthiest—and whitest—Washington, D.C. suburbs, yard signs still remain to signal to any angry mob that might return. Fauci is expendable. A ruling class that knows how to benefit from every crisis is confident it can withstand whatever deluge may come.

It is of course likely that the ruling class will not only survive but continue to profit from every crisis that arises. But the unknown variable is how the children of the COVID generation respond. Children have a natural antipathy for lies. Today’s children have been frightened and deceived—by elites like Fauci, by their teachers, even by their parents. Elites will have to go to significant lengths to prevent today’s children from eventually learning that it wasn’t the science that dictated that they remain home and avoid friends and wear masks but mere fallible humans, perhaps with another agenda; that many rich and powerful elites benefitted from the pandemic shutdowns and the bailouts.

Many are likely to sooner or later rebel against the teachers who taught them that a person is good or evil on the basis of epidermal pigment or genitalia. They may also rebel against the parents who were either gullible or obsequious, for children often come to hate those who cannot protect them, much as they come to hate those who spoil them. It is they who may become the wrathful simpleton-citizens of Miller’s imagination, who will one day cry, "Let us stone and disembowel and burn the ones who did this thing."

If that day ever comes, it’s unlikely the angry mob will find Anthony Fauci doing penance in a desert monastery.

Democrats Are Turning ‘Homeland Security' Into A Political Weapon
I knew that was gonna happen as soon as the organization was named.
Opening paragraphs:
[Federalist] When a former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence says directly into a camera that fighting terror may now mean arresting members of Congress, the blood sport of politics has been taken to a new and more dangerous level.

Speaking on MSNBC recently, Frank Figliuzzi opined to Chuck Todd that: “Arresting low-level operatives is merely a speed bump, not a road block. In order to really tackle terrorism … and this time domestically … you’ve got to attack and dismantle the command-and-control element of the terrorist group, and unfortunately, and I know this is painful to hear … that may mean people sitting in Congress right now, people in and around the former president.”

It is the stuff of banana republics when political opponents are locked up, and this was urged not by a fringe activist on an obscure YouTube channel, but by a former high-ranking U.S. intelligence official on the second-most-watched cable news network, with no gasp from the host. Is this what “homeland security” has become?

Clearly, much has changed since 9/11, when President George W. Bush instituted a new office to “secure the United States from terrorist threats of attacks” that eventually became the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). With a $40 billion budget and more than 240,000 employees, it is now a behemoth eclipsed in size only by the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

Although established with noble purpose, there is growing evidence that its focus has evolved in a direction those voting for its creation never imagined. Those with the secret clearances and shiny badges are increasingly scrutinizing our homeland, not for external attackers, but our own people.

it is interesting in that a lot of Dems staked everything on getting rid of ID and so I don't see this getting a lot of Dem support without more watering done of the ID requirement

Manchin's bill also restricts mail in to those who have an excuse but here too the details matter and some Dems will find it too restrictive

The more important issue is that this entire effort takes power from the States and Federalizes it.

NBC's Chuck Todd: Outrage on Critical Race Theory Is 'Manufactured'
[BREITBART] NBC anchor Chuck Todd said Sunday on "Meet the Press" that the outrage parents are experiencing over Critical Race Theory

...teaches that skin color is the most important characteristic of any person, which translates to separate but equal with a different bunch in charge. All whites and Asians are born racist and racism permeates every aspect of society, which should be dismantled and the remains turned over to the kind of dipshit who pushes this nonsense...
was "manufactured."PBS news hound Amna Nawaz said, "Specific to this idea of critical race theory. I spent time reporting on this county in Virginia about an hour outside of Washington. To your point, this is something mobilizing people and resonating very deeply. It was about a 100-degree day, dozens and dozens and dozens of parents, mostly white in this largely affluent county, showed up to a school board meeting, for in the first one they attended, specifically because of this one issue."

Republican strategist Brad Todd said, "you mentioned critical race theory a couple of times. This is a parent-led backlash at the grassroots level."

Anchor Chuck Todd said, "It’s manufactured, and then sort of the fire was lit."

Brad Todd said, "I disagree. I think it started because parents have had it with the education bureaucracy after COVID. They’re fed up with it. They tend to trust Democrats on education funding, but they trust Republicans on education accountability. I think the backlash you’re seeing on critical race theory in schools is other parents trying to hold educators accountable."

MSNBC political analysts Cornell Belcher said, "It’s coordinated, it’s aggressive, it’s intentional. This is part of the tribalism play. The critical race theory is yet another tool in the racial, tribal boogeyman’s toolbox to drive and inflame tribalism which Republicans think helps them in elections. This is Trump 2.0. It is a continuation of this. Critical race theory is an arcane ideal. Why is it front and center right now? The same reason Mitch McConnell attacked Stacey Abrams
...the pudgy, sour grapes lo-o-o-o-o-ser (Loser! Loser! Loser!) of the 2018 Georgia governor's race. Stacey nominated herself to be Joe Biden's vice president nominee, to widespread national apathy. She has a very keen eye for Racism in any form, to include the imaginary...
when she came out for the voting bill. It is racial. It is tribalism. We’ve seen it grow under Trump. This is part and parcel of it. They think this helps ignite their base. This is not grassroots, and Brad, you know this is organized and is being paid for."

Far-Left Group to Launch $1.2 Million Ad Blitz Pressuring Kyrsten Sinema to Trash Filibuster
[BREITBART] A far-left group will run $1.2 million worth of ads in Arizona from June 21 to June 30 to pressure Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) into trashing the filibuster, amid fears the Republicans will use it to block the legislation designed cancel state voter ID laws and publicly fund political campaigns.Just Democracy will air two ads on cable news programs, local news, and local sports in Arizona and spend $200,000 on digital ads to garner support for the "For The People Act."

One ad begins in reference to her past voting record, "Arizona, Kyrsten Sinema is failing us."

"As the GOP tries to silence our voices, she’s just standing by, supporting a Jim Crow relic instead," the ad says. "You’re refusing to stand with us, Sen. Sinema. Why should we stand with you?"

A second ad slams Sinema for not "fighting" for federal takeover of local elections. "You’re doing their [Republicans] dirty work, letting a Jim Crow relic keep us down."

"Our right to vote is under attack," the ad continues, calling out Sinema for upholding the filibuster.

Sinema is a co-sponsor of the "For The People Act," which presumably will receive a vote in the Senate on Tuesday. However,

the measure is expected to collapse due to the filibuster’s 60 vote threshold, as Democrats have failed to whip enough votes to overcome the barrier.

A Thursday poll indicated the majority of likely general election voters oppose the federal election takeover bill that specifically cancels state voter ID laws and publicly funds political campaigns.

on Wednesday recommended outside groups not "try to bully Manchin, but to instead focus on the historical and factual arguments related to the legislation."

Perhaps in a different political position than Sinema, Manchin said he feels comfortable throwing a wrench into the radical Democrats’ fast-moving laundry list of legislative items, telling the New York Times
